Crime trends - A summary from the past week
On Tuesday, 7 vehicles were burglarized in 24 hours, all in one neighborhood on adjacent blocks. Vehicles were entered by prying on doors and windows with a tool.
Residential Burglaries and scams:
Last week a Foothills resident noticed a broken window at a neighbors house. She saw 2 males inside the elderly female neighbors home and called APD. She provided a great description and APD officers arrived within minutes. They arrested the 2 males who both had prior arrest records and one was linked to 14 other burglaries.
Be safe in your home:
If someone is at your door, you should never open the door if you are not expecting them or if you don't recognize the person. However you should do something to let that person know someone is home. You can yell I'm busy or just make a loud noise by slamming a nearby door inside. Posting a "no solicitors" sign will deter most door-to-door solicitors.
Almost all of our residential burglary offenders are gaining entry to homes via breaking a window or sliding glass door in the rear of the residence. Please be alert to anyone in your neighborhood knocking on front doors or ringing front doorbells and then making their way around the sides of homes to the back. Lock up and if you have home alarms, please activate them.
Doggie doors being used as points of entry for residential burglaries again. Secure your doggie doors!
